How cloud-based construction tech Is decreasing risk

Companies realizing the benefits of cloud-based tech implementing them to great results Every industry contains some amount of risk, but construction faces more than most. It accounts for 20 per cent of all worker fatalities in private sectors [1], more than any other line of work. Thankfully, new technologies are making construction safer. Construction has historically been slow to adopt new tech, but that’s starting to change. More firms are realizing the benefits of cloud-based construction tech and are implementing them, leading to impressive safety improvements. Here are five ways these services and devices are decreasing risk in construction. 1. Highlighting hazards in preconstruction One of the most common cloud-based technologies in construction is building information modeling (BIM). BIM provides digital project management tools, including clash detection, which highlights potential errors and risks in a structure’s design or workflows. BIM can help mitigate threats before they arise by bringing […]
